Very Difficult Interview

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
Chesapeake, VA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at AppleOne in October 2009.

Interview Details – Very disappointing. I have over 10 years experience in the field I applied for. I took a year off from the field to focus on a degree (a four year degree at that) and worked as a part time waitress during that period. This company could not look past that one year of service to another industry, didnt care what so ever about having recently completed a four year degree, nor the several recommendations I received from prior employers. I spent an hour and a half completing a very detailed application to include a skills test, etc. I know I did well on those test no dought because I have passed them with flying colors on the job & with other temporary agencies. I received a call at the end of business day the day before my interview (which was scheduled three days prior) and told "You have great qualifications however our clients prefer persons with more recent experience". I was astonished that they chose to cancel an in person interview and persue following through with in house testing because they could not look past one year of service outside of the desired industry, especially for what I was able to offer. I feel this company is very narrow minded and has tunnel vision. I actually feel bad for employers who rely on them because I can just imagine the number of well-rounded potential employees they are being cheated of.

Administrative Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee
Santa Clara, CA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at AppleOne in September 2011.

Interview Details – AppleOne's testing process took about 90 minutes to complete. I was tested on Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. The one-on-one interview with their recruiting rep was a wake-up call to me: it made me aware of how much I needed to polish my interviewing skills. I was my own worst enemy! I went to the Employment Development Dept's Job Seeker Center in Sunnyvale and took every class they offered, and it's all free, too. What a huge help that was! In fact, I think it would be worthwhile for these temp agencies to coach their recruits on interviewing skills.

Marketing Research Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 5 days - interviewed at AppleOne in October 2010.

Interview Details – My agency contacted me about the opportunity and I let them know I was interested in applying for the position. Several days later I received a notification from my agency that the employer was interested in a one-on-one interview. I went in for the interview and sat down in a common meeting space. The interview lasted about 30 minutes and it was very informal. We discussed why I was interested and how I'd be a good fit. The interviewer told me what the role entailed and what she was looking for in an ideal candidate and that she thought I met the requirements.

Interview Question – Why are you interested in this position?   Answer Question
